A petition to ban 'Bornstubborn' (formerly Caspiantiger) from the Student Room, or at least D&D for reducing the possibility of others to engage in a constructive and fruitful debate, not to mention his incessant racist and sexist comments. Now the mods haven't taken any action so I thought I'd start this debate to address this issue and freedom of speech more generally.
Should we tolerate trolls on TSR?
All those in favour say aye!
There's more than one that deserves banning to be honest.
2026 calling for someone to be banned for being a 'troll'? Hilarious.
Excessive cases need sorting.
Why haven't the mods done anything yet??
I don't know about the specific member, having not hung round in D&D for a while... but you can't ban people for being inflammatory idiots. The term "troll" implies he's doing it to get a laugh out of your reactions, but your post makes it sound more like he's just bigoted. Well, that's unpleasant, yeah, but not a ban-worthy offence...
Suggested course of action: ignore, or report any abusive posts.
Well you can't ban somebody for being racist or sexist either, if they aren't being offensive or abusive. If i say 'i think the japanese are a superior race because...', have i broken any rules?
if this person is being racist, i for one want him banned.
